Treating Adult Children of Alcoholics showcases the first
collection of treatment chapters devoted entirely to a systematic
behavioral analysis of drinking and nondrinking offspring of
alcoholic families. The author identifies the functional and
behavioral characteristics that make up the adult children of
alcoholics (ACOA) syndrome. This compendium combines current
innovations in behavioral medicine with multi-componential
interventions shown effective with the variety of disorders evident
in this patient population. This handbook for practitioners is
richly laced with case examples and addresses the needs of
therapists seeking fast, effective and proven treatments for
longstanding clinical symptoms of children of alcoholics.
